Obviously, the Charlie Hebdo killers are not terrorists

That some people have a serious mental problem is known. However, nobody beats Tarik Kafala from the BBC:

The BBC was branded ‘mad’ yesterday after a top executive said the Charlie Hebdo killers should not be described as ‘terrorists’. Tarik Kafala, head of BBC Arabic, said the term terrorist was too ‘loaded’ and ‘value-laden’ to describe the fanatics who murdered 12 people at the French satirical magazine.

Ok, maybe there's another term? Let's check:

'We should use words which specifically describe the perpetrator such as "bomber", "attacker", "gunman", "kidnapper", "insurgent", and "militant".

But whatever these criminals do, the reason they are doing is in order to make people afraid from doing something they don't want them to do.

Like the two brothers who slaughered the Charlie Hebdo editorial staff in order to frighten them enough not to publish another Mohammed caricature.

And that's the quintessential definition of the word 'terrorist'. Unlike what Tarik Kafala believes.
